Before we get started,
00:01
I just really, just wanna say that this is a,
00:04
such an honor in doing the cover of W!
00:06
It's just, I'm pinching myself all day,
00:08
I've been like, oh my God!
00:10
What?
00:11
It's okay, yeah, okay. (laughs)
00:14
Hey guys, I'm Meredith Hagner,
00:16
this is my unabridged history in one minute.
00:19
I was born May 31st,
00:20
that makes me a Gemini,
00:22
that makes me a little crazy.
00:23
I was a baby,
00:25
then I moved to Houston, Texas
00:27
where I grew up until I was 13.
00:29
I was a normal kid, actually I wasn't,
00:32
I caught a lot of reptiles,
00:33
I went through a really strong reptile phase,
00:35
so I thought that was gonna sorta be my path.
00:37
Played a lot of basketball,
00:38
I thought I was good,
00:39
I actually wasn't cause I was so much shorter than everyone.
00:41
Then I moved to Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
00:45
I was a cheerleader
00:47
until I broke my arm,
00:50
which I broke my arm three times in my childhood.
00:51
And then I got into drama,
00:53
I literally shaved the back of my head
00:54
and become an improv nerd.
00:56
I worked at a pretzel store for that,
00:58
and then I had a stalker at the pretzel store,
01:00
so I had to quit that job.
01:03
Ah!
01:03
Oh my God, I've got so much more history to cover.
01:06
Yeah, moved to New York City,
01:08
passed out flyers,
01:09
started acting (starts speaking gibberish),
01:11
and then I started to live.
01:13
And I live in Los Angeles now
01:15
and I have three dogs
01:16
and they're all really messed up rescues
01:18
but I love them so much.
01:19
(dings)
01:20
Oh my God, was that okay?
01:21
That, it's weird,
01:22
the game, sort of like,
01:24
stream of consciousness brings things up.
01:26
I was really heavy on the early years.
